20 Jan Giano 5.0 release
After 18 months of labor, version 5.0 of Giano finally sees the light. The new release of GFP Lab’s Hotel Supervisor brings with it several new features .
Door unlock with a WebApp
It is not always possible to welcome guests upon arrival to give them the keys to their room. Giano MyKey is a tool that allows you to access the room without having a mechanical key or RFID.
Giano MyKey is not an App, but a WebApp , therefore does not require any installation or authentication on the Apple and Google stores . Just click on the link received in the email during pre-check-in and enter your personal PIN, in order to unlock all the necessary gates to the room. Giano MyKey does not provide the subscription of any usage fee .

The buttons for the management of the light points are enhanced by the automatic detection of the gestures long press (to manage the fade) and double pressure (to send the light point at maximum brightness or minimum).
